Inspiration for Your Novel Set in the Winelands

The second part of my holiday was spent in Stellenbosch -- home to the grapes of some of South Africa's best wines. Hmm... I think I could come up with a good family saga set in the winelands... Wealthy family, forbidden love, secrets kept hidden for years...

Goodness, those are gorgeously beautiful photos! They would be excellent photo prompts for a story! I can almost smell the blossoms in the first one...

I really loved the mountains in the background of the one picture. Now I think I'll have a glass of wine.

This is simply gorgeous! I've not read many books but a movie set in wine country always makes a pretty picture.

By now Rachel I expect you have the outline done. Those pictures were wonderfully exotic!

Oh, how gorgeous! It looks like time has forgotten it--fabulous charm. I love the geography, too, with the dramatic mountains in the background.
